The Beautiful Park Si-yeon’s Journey of Love
Park Si-yeon (born as Park Mi-seon on March 29th, 1979) is an actress from South Korea, who was also the semi-finalist of Miss Korea 2000. She made her debut in the entertainment industry as an actress in the Chinese movie Feng Qiu Huang, in 2004. Her contribution to the Korean entertainment industry started with her first role in the SBS drama My Girl, in 2005. She also starred in Bittersweet Life, Yeon Gae So Mun, Marine Boy, The Innocent Man, The Greatest Marriage, and Should We Kiss First.
Despite being known as a talented actress and the fascinating semi-finalist of Miss Korea, she was mostly known as “Eric’s girlfriend”. Eric Mun was a member of the six-member boy group Shinhwa, and Park Si-yeon dated him in 2004. Park Si-yeon said that it took her 10 different roles to erase the tag and make her become known for her own talent. Unfortunately, Park Si-yeon and Eric Mun broke up in 2007.
She once said in Cosmopolitan magazine interview, “These days the thing I most think about is, ‘Have I lived well?’ I’m happy when I film dramas or movies, but in this kind of life you should turn back and take stock of your life at least once, and I think that time has come. I want to love. I want to marry soon and live boisterously.” And yeah, people were shocked by her marriage news, one year later, with an ordinary (non-celebrity) man, Park Sang-hun.
Park Si-yeon’s Married Life
Park Si-yeon finally decided to marry Park Sang-hun, a regular, corporate officer from a financial securities company. They tied the knot on November 19th, 2011, at the Seoul Hyatt Hotel. Their wedding ceremony was attended by numerous famous celebrities, such as Lee Hyori, Han Ye-seul, Oh Yeon-soo, Nam Gyu-ri, Cha Ye-ryun, Jo Yeo-jung, Son Tae-young, Park Shi-hoo, and others.
The ceremony was rousing. Lee Juk sang the wedding song for the bride. The one who caught the bride’s thrown bucket was Kang Sung-yeon, who accidentally had been planning to get married in January of 2012. Park Si-yeon also stated, “I will try my best to be a good example as a happy family. Thank you for all the congratulations.” She also said that she will continue her acting career even after her marriage.
After they tied the knot, Park Si-yeon and Park Sang-hun were blessed with two daughters. Their first child was born on September 24th, 2013, while their second child was born on November 14th, 2015. Everybody felt happy for her second childbirth and wished her to have a good day with her happy family.
But, Park Si-yeon was once involved in a drug scandal for illegally using a high amount of propofol, a sedation drug, in 2013, after her first child was born. Park Si-yeon’s agency denied this scandal by stating that she took the drug for medical reasons because she injured her back while working on the set for the movies Marine Boy and Dachimawa Lee.
The result of the doctor’s investigation during the trial revealed that she had been taking the drug to treat avascular necrosis at the head of her femur. Unfortunately, the final judgment came out in October 2013. The Seoul Central District Court found Park Si-yeon guilty of taking propofol 400-500 times over four-and-a-half years (or 8.2 times a month). She was sentenced to eight months in prison and suspended for two years.
The Unwanted Divorce
After 5 years of marriage, a rumor of Park Si-yeon and Park Sang-hun’s divorce had broken out. Park Si-yeon’s agency Mystic Entertainment stood up to clarify this rumor. The representatives from the agency stated, “It is true that Park Si-yeon is currently filing for a divorce. Since she’s still in the process of filing a suit and it is a private matter, it is difficult to reveal the reason for the divorce.”
To clarify a false rumor they also added, “There were efforts to reach a settlement, but it was difficult to settle, thus a suit had to be filed, unfortunately. We ask that false rumors and speculations not be spread in consideration of her young children. We will also take action [against false rumors and speculations].”
Now the process is settled down already. Park Si-yeon and Park Sang-hun are known to have no relationship afterward. Every problem was settled in private due to their children’s privacy. Just hope Park Si-yeon, her ex-husband Park Sang-hun, and their two daughters are living a happy life right now.
